Welcome to the family run Cave Boutique Hotel Assiana House in Cappadocia;
Cappadocia started forming 60 million years ago with the eruptions of the volcanoes and then the wind & the rain. Whilst the nature formed the Fairy Chimneys, mankind have carved houses and churches in these rock formations and decorated them with frescoes; which formed an important part of Cappadocia's history.
Cappadocia's convenient location and geo-political importance made the region an important base for the early Christian communities to hide away from the persecutions. In time, the region became so convenients that it was also a major route and a cross road of the ancient Silk Road.
The last Christians of Cappadocia left the region in 1920s with the population exchange leaving behind most beautiful examples of arhitecture.
Assiana Cave House is one of the houses left behind the population exchange. We have completed a restoration with all respect to its history, and saluted our first guests in 2006. With our breathing rock rooms, comfortable and cozy arched rooms we tried to harmonize the old & the new with a touch of Urgup's beauty.
Hosting with a total of 7 rooms, we sincerely hope that you feel the 'land of beautiful horse' like your home land enjoy the fairy tales of Cappadocia.
It is also my honor to be elected the District Chief and have the duty to preserve the authenticty of our district.
The erosion of Cappadocia is a continuing process and the landscape changes continuously. You may enjoy this with a balloon trip, or a horse-ride, or even a hike thru the valleys.
You wake up in an authentic room with warmth and serenity and the Assiana House smiles at you:
I'm Mevlut, my wife Suna, our daughter Pinar and our son Gokhan are proud to be your hosts in this land o the fairies.
